Today is our annual Christmas party with TennGRITS, the stamp art club that I've been a member of since it formed in January 2000. Our plans are to meet at an Italian restaurant that I've never been to so I'm excited about that. We all bring handmade gifts and have a wonderful time exchanging them. The snowmen will be given by Clarissa and are inspired by the recent cover of Cloth Paper Scissors. The bottles are by Starbucks and the insides were sprayed with adhesive spray and 'snow' was shaken inside the bottle to give this look. A chandelier crystal hangs from the necklace along with beads and jingle bells. The nose is a paper bead painted orange and felt snowflakes are adhered to the bottle. The heads were created pretty much like the CPS article using white air-dry clay, glitter and assorted brads, beads, and wire.
My gift is an ornament similar to an earlier post. The tins are Eclipse mint boxes that have been sanded, primed and painted. Each one features an angel with a star in the background that has been glittered. Holly and berries are attached using red garland from RockCandyStudios. A selection of paper beads for a future project are inside each ornament. I've rolled so many beads this last couple of days that I could do it in my sleep! Let the party begin!
